Amazing experience!
Madeline_F, Mar 2023
Absolutely brilliant. Olesya was an incredible tour guide. Her knowledge was amazing, and she had an increíble delivery that made everything you were seeing make sense and tie together, allowing you to understand the full story. Highly recommend also paying for the tour of the museum included as this helped us understand what we were seeing in the museum. The tour is a lot of walking on uneven surfaces so definitely recommend good walking shoes. A lot of the surfaces are slippery marble or cobbles and up steep inclines. All in all, would definitely do again!
Great tour
Katherine_K, Mar 2023
Charoula was informative with historical facts and friendly as well. The trip was well organized and well paced . The acropolis is beyond awesome and so is the museum.
Greece treasure
Thomas_M, Mar 2023
Wonderful tour with Sissy. Exceptional knowledge of the Pantheon & museum. My wife & I are very pleased with the tour & services.
Fantastic Experience!
Leah_H, Mar 2023
This tour was fantastic, and our guide, Niobe, was wonderful. She was incredibly knowledgeable and shared so much detail with us that I would never have known otherwise. I highly recommend going in March, as the weather was perfect and there weren’t huge crowds. Having Niobe as a guide at the museum was also a must, I would never have appreciated everything there nearly as much otherwise.
Recommend for solo travel
Ruth_M, Mar 2023
Our guide was informed and shared the right amount of information on a tour that could be over loaded with facts. She read the group well and was gentle with breaks on steep, slippery terrain.
Fantastic acropolis
Robyn_V, Mar 2023
We had a great guide called Eli. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. This is a day with a lot of walking. The museum followed on well from the Acropolis. It was also helpful to be advised at the start to buy some lunch before starting.
Chrisvoula is an amazing tour guide.
Luis_M, Mar 2023
Chrisvoula (I think I spelled her name correctly) was an amazing tour guide. She was enthusiastic and had a very good sense of humor in her story telling throughout the course of the tour. She made sure that everyone was comfortable and had a good, easy going pace going up the hill. I loved her tour and strongly recommend her. Thank you for the experience!
Better than expected!
Christine_A, Feb 2023
It was fabulous, exceeded even our hopes. The food was outstanding, the guide so knowledgeable and personable, and we loved learning so much about the city, too, as we wandered.
Parthenon and museum tour
JoseAntonio_B, Feb 2023
The tour of the Parthenon was very informative. The tour of the Acropolis Museum reinforced the info from the Parthenon part of the tour. Loved both activities!

Cissy (I believe the spelling) was an awesome tour guide! Very knowledgeable and made walking the Acropolis and the museum even more enjoyable
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for sharing your positive experience! It's wonderful to know that Sissy (Greek names are hard to spell :) but you did a great job!) was able to enhance your enjoyment of the tour by sharing her extensive knowledge about the sites. The Acropolis and Acropolis Museum are both rich in history and significance, so having a knowledgeable guide can really help visitors appreciate the significance of what they're seeing. Thank you again!

Haim_H, Dec 2022
The tour was very interesting and was well guided, my wife and I had a great time. I would recommend taking the full package and visiting the museum as well. Our guide Sissy was very knowledgeable and guided us with skill and knowledge :-) Thank you for a great experience

Great tour for Acropolis highlights
Marcia_C, Dec 2022
Niobe, our guide, was kind and extremely knowledgeable. We climbed the hill and she explained everything there, plus gave us some time to wander on our own. She answered questions and gave a personal touch to the experience. Thank you! For visitors, I suggest to take a fruit or snack to eat in between the acropolis and museum (5 Min) as it can be a bit long tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We are delighted to hear about your positive feedback, and how much you enjoyed your experience with us, dear Marcia! It's all about team effort, and our guests' remarks enable us to strive for even better service each time. Hope to see you again soon; thank you!

A Must See!
MrJohn_D, Nov 2022
The pickup location was very easy to find and I would highly recommend you try the Greek Yoghurt near by. The tour itself was fantastic and an absolute must if you're staying in Athens. I would strongly advise you include a museum ticket, as the exhibits on display are truly amazing. I would finally like to say a big thank you to our tour guide Effie. She was charming, engaging and allot of fun 👍

Our guide made this tour excellent
Vicky_D, Nov 2022
What made this tour top notch was our guide - Angela - we highly recommend her she was knowledgeable, professional truly passionate about her work. She understands history and archeology and clearly communicates complicated information while keeping track of her group amidst crowds. We could not say more about her we have traveled a great deal and have had many tour guides. Angela was among the best.
